So this is Christmas

Last night we braved the cold for some downtown Christmas cheer!  The (real and ginormous) Christmas tree they have set up in Faneuil hall is spectacular!

 And Jason showed us his new partial cube!  Cambridge Associates moved buildings this week to a much nicer one near the Aquarium station.  Very feng shui.
And Lincoln wanted to try out everyone's phone :) He looks like such a homeless man.

Snowflakes for Sandy Hook

The prettiest ones are Jason's :)  I think his heart grew 3 sizes last night.

Jolly Old

Well, one of my boys will go to strangers.  Lincoln wants nothing to do with this man.  Maybe next year!
Parley has become the wiggliest squirmiest squirrel!  Sacrament meeting is pretty intense/ridiculous with him!  Oh that plane flight next week...

Little N

 My friend Kristi is due any day with her 2nd, so I was more than happy to take her toddler this morning while she got some things done around the house.
And what else would I do with a little girl in the house but dress her up and do a PHOTOSHOOT! 
 We've all decided that little N is the prettiest little girl in the ward.  Oh those curls!
 Thanks for letting me steal her away, Kristi!

Pie Part II

Remember how I got the flu literally just before we sat down for Thanksgiving dinner?  Good thing ward Christmas parties mean more jello and more pie!!

Link & I had fun with this one this morning.
 I can't believe how long he spent cutting things out over and over again.  He won't really do anything with playdough except take it in and out of the container, so I guess cookie cutters are the way to his heart.
Get this, you can mix one egg yolk with a drop of food coloring and paint pie crust cut-outs!  Pretty huh.  I bet you could get way fancy with different Fall colors.

 Ya, they look delicious, but they're just nasty pie crust pieces with egg yolk painted on!
 Did I disguise tree leaves as holly well enough?

And The Prettiest Sight You'll See

Its not really Christmas until the fresh pine wreath goes up!  I'm kind of proud that this year I made a finger bleed while putting it together, haha.

At the Christmas Party Hop

At Jason's ritzy holiday work parties, I feel like I am married to the incredibly successful and filthy rich business man that I know he will surely be :) Congrats on your promotion lovie!

It's a Girl!

Welcome to family!
Kate Beckett (aka Nikki Heat)

We bought a 2007 Honda Fit!  With only one previous owner and 40,000 miles on it, we think we found a goodie.  It looks like it will be a tight row of eventually three car seats, but we had to get something squatty for all the parallel street parking around here!  Loving the hatchback for stroller space, and I'm mostly just in heaven having something with air-conditioning and power locks!!!

A Cozy for Patty

 I fell in love with an Etsy shop that makes laptop covers for ~$50, and thought surely I could make one with the scraps off my sewing room floor.
True that.  With a little quilt batting between the layers, it probably won't save my lappy from a bad fall, but aleast she looks cute!  Plus, the more I dress up my laptop, the less likely Jason is to keep stealing it, right?

The Death of a Schroed-Man

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a good friend:
Schroeder, the Hyundai

We knew this day would come, but at the ripe old age of 12 years old, he still feels so young to us.
This little guy has been a part of our family from the very start.  You could say he is the reason we are a family in the first place because it was in this very car that Jason asked me out on our first date.  

From Utah to San Diego, Maine, Idaho, Houston, Ohio, and Boston, he has carried us to family, cruise ports, vacations, and homes.  With our memories of better times, we send him on to a better place.  Though he is junk-yard bound for a mere $325, in our hearts, he will always be our little money pit.

Rest in Peace, Schroeder.

The Hatter

Lincoln got a new hat, and from the moment he laid eyes on it, the two have been practically inseparable!  He wears it all day around the house, he wears it to preschool, he wears it to bed.
What a funny guy!  
(And notice Jason's participation in No-Shave-November.  I actually don't hate it.)

Another Stocking Was Hung
